Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner CEO & Founder, And Dr. Deepak Chopra At PTTOW! Summit
In 2017, we had the honor to speak at the PTTOW! (Plan to Take On the World!) Summit in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. It’s an invite-only summit for today’s most inspiring and creative Chief Executive Officers and Chief Marketing Officers, leading entrepreneurs in more than 70 industries, as well as artists and athletes, and has been described as the TED event of the marketing world, with around 100 invited attendees every year and 250 members in total.
Members have included the 14th Dalai Lama, professional surfer Kelly Slater, actor Rainn Wilson, members of Linkin Park, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, seven-time Grammy Award-winner will.i.am, and founders, CEOs, and CMOs from life is good, Quiksilver, Warby Parker, Zappas, Warner Music Group, HP, Microsoft, EA, Pepsi, P&G, Facebook, YouTube, 20th Century Fox Films, Red Bull, and many more.
It’s been going strong for 12 years and grows every year, and we were honored to be able to provide Lovetuners for every one of the industry learners present in 2017, teaching them about meditation and mindfulness practices that will calm their anxieties in order to focus on personal fulfillment as well as professional success.
The group itself hopes to change the world with these changemakers and change leaders, and describes the PTTOW! Sessions as a place to form supergroups for business. Assembled members meet to discuss potential for business collaborations that have been pre-planned by the organizers — essentially it facilitates conversations between groups that wouldn’t naturally come together and allows industry leaders to develop ideas they wouldn’t and couldn’t be able to develop by themselves.
Founder Roman Tsunder says he started the movement with a passion to influence culture on a global scale. He has always focused social impact inspiration as the forefront of his career, bringing together youth movement activists to empower young people to mobilize against violence and oppression, in his founding membership days at Gen-Next.org and Movements.org. He recently launched WORLDZ, uniting today’s stars with rising stars to ignite a cultural revelation and inspire community-building for the future.
As a Lovetuner user himself, he knows the power of our meditation whistle and invited us to speak alongside Dr. Deepak Chopra and to lead a meditation session. Tsunder once said, “We want to spend [our] time doing the grandest things; whether it’s figuring out what’s happening on Mars, or whether it’s figuring out commercial space flight, or whether it’s figuring out how to help people’s lives.” It was our pleasure to introduce these innovators to our meditation practices in the hopes that they can better calm and focus using the Love frequency and become better people and professionals while they change the world and their industries.
Tsunder once said that culture should be thought of as water — you don’t understand it unless you’re in it. As the makers of the Lovetuner, tuned to the frequency of love and to water, we understand that. Meditation doesn’t make sense on the outside until you’re in it either, but just like water, once you’re surrounded by it, it adapts to you as you adapt to it, and the world changes.
We’re honored to be a part of that with the PTTOW! Summit and Dr. Deepak Chopra, with founder Roman Tsunder.
Sigmar Berg: The Lovetuner has a profound effect on your mind, body, and spirit. It relaxes you and takes away stress and anxiety through a deep breathing exercise. So when Deepak came on board supporting our Lovetuner movement, he wrote me a letter and he finished this letter with…one sentence and I [am] stealing this from him and because it really brings it to the point what our movement and the Lovetuner mission is all about. He said, “Thank you for helping to create a more peaceful, just, sustainable, happier and healthier world.” So please give a warm welcome to Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Deepak Chopra: What we call cultural icons are those people who are sharing a story but
also living a story that speaks to the deepest longings of our soul and our heart. For me that is a critical mass of people in the world undergoing personal and social transformation to create a more peaceful, just, sustainable, healthier, and more joyful world. Lovetuning is another way of resonating together at the same frequency.
Sigmar Berg: It will have a great impact on your life, and I would say it’s like… [when] somebody signs up for a yoga center or signs up for a fitness center, and then you get your membership card. It feels good but if you don’t go there, it doesn’t do anything. Mindfulness and spiritual work is about the same thing; if you don’t practice it, it’s not happening. If you do it, it will change your life. Thank you guys; have a great night
Roman Tsunder: That’s why we created this lovetuning session [for] all of our members, and I think this kind of was the perfect preparation for them to be grounded and for them to be aware and to now be able to be open up their hearts as they experience the rest of the show that we put together for them; and lovetuning was the perfect tool for that to happen…I personally practice love tuning and it’s just fantastic to be able to take a break from your day to be able to be aware.
